|06:49 am - The lost verse|
Every now and then, I know you'll never be the boy you always wanted to be
So I cleaned my office this weekend to make room for the new Macintosh that will be coming home at some point. Now I just have to remember what I did with that splitter I bought the other day.
Every now and then, I know you'll always be the only boy who wanted me the way that I am.
Greg was in town this weekend. The way things worked out, he ended up coming alone, but I think he had fun anyway. I got to drive him to the airport this morning. Hurray! Yesterday we went to Mary's. It's always great to see him. I know I've mentioned him here before (and I'm sure I will again), but I can't stress enough how much he contributed to making me a better person. When I met him I was a stupid kid. And now I'm a stupid old person. No, no, no. He was really the first person to treat me like an adult. I mean, yes I met friends in college, but most college kids and professors and people associated with it tend to treat you like you're a college-aged kid. Which, I pretty much was, and I think most people are. But you never forget the first person who treats you like you're a fully-formed reasoning human being, however young your years and maturity indicate.
So it's always good to see him. And we always have a good time when he's around.
Every now and then I know there's no one in the universe as magical and wonderous as you.
And we bought the Mac yesterday, and some software to go with. No Framemaker though. I'm still not sure what to do about that. I think for the moment I'm going to continue to use hoppie's laptop if I need Frame at least until I'm sure which way we'll jump on the conservationist -vs- new edition front.
Every now and then, I know there's nothing any better, there's nothing that I just wouldn't do.
I'm listening to Cor's audioblogs now. I've returned from dropping Greg off at the airport and we got to talk a bit. Now I'm at work bouncing off some revisions and catching up on lj and comics. It's all good. Heather is moving around pretty well now. She's eating more than just cheerios. </i>
SQEEEEEEE. It's me! I'm the friend!! Woot! Woot! Woot!
Alright, I'm done,
(sorry, it just came up again on the audiopost)
Every now and then, I get a little bit lonely and I dream of something wild
I had a interesting dream this morning. I was dreaming I was at my parents' house and I was late to pick up Greg up to take him to the airport. And I was running around downstairs and upstairs trying to get out of there before we missed the flight. And It's like 5 or something and the flight leaves at 6 and I still have to pick him up and my father is trying to have a conversation with me then I wake up. It's like 4:30 and I'm late to pick Greg up, and I'm running around my parents' house, and my father is trying to have a conversation with me and I start picking through the skirts that are laid out on the floor of my bedroom looking for one to wear. I remember a few of them, but one was like a Wal*Mart skirt, it had various blue colors and the lower half of the skirt had big yellow printed smileys. I remember vaguely thinking it was odd and not remember seeing it before and wondering if I would ever wear such a skirt. Then I woke up. It's 3:15, 15 minutes before my alarm is set to go off. I am in my own bed. My husband is asleep next to me. It is dark and very very toasty warm. I relaxed in the warmth for a few minutes, then got up and go to get Greg.

That really was in no particular order

|08:15 am - That time of year again|
I don't think I was on the ball enough to do photocards. Maybe next year, but I'm going to Valentines day card shopping, so please let me know if you want to be on my list.
I mail them out Monday next, so I'll need to know before the weekend which I was use to address them.
So do you want a Valentines day card?
Only if you mean it
Hell, freaking yes.
No. Valentines day sucks.
Damnit, Valentines day, you will!
I'm still waiting for the one from the little red haired girl!
Something cute, please.
I'm trusting you to pick out something good.
Where should it come from? (I do have a larger list of options than this, but I narrowed it down to my favorites)
Loveland, OH (my traditional stop)
Lovely, KY (hoppie's pick)
I'm going to need your address...
Right. I'll get it to you via email at email@example.com
I'll include it in a comment to this mail.
You already have it.
Ew! Valentines! Don't send me any of that hearts and flowers crap!
Toss in a recent picture?
Toss in a wedding picture?
Money is always welcome!
Gifts of nominal value, please, I don't want it to appear as though you are trying to buy my affection.
No, the chances of you actually remembering to put any of that above stuff in are so minimal, it's pointless to request it.
Why do you poll on everything?

|09:25 am - Phone post (of a different sort)|
My ATT&T Wireless service contract expired a couple of days ago, and now I'm thinking, it's a good time to do the switch I've been thinking about since July of last year. So, tell me a bit about your phone and I'll see if I can't come up with a new phone for Valentines day. I didn't get myself anything for my birthday, so it seems a good time to make it up.
Do you have a wireless or cellular telephone
Cellphones are the very devil! Yes. (meep)
Cellphones are the very devil! No! BAHAHAHAAHAHAH!
Couldn't live without it.
Couldn't stand to have one
Who provides your service?
In a crowded place, it's singular.
Sprint. The worlds first fiberoptic network.
MCI/Worldcom, damnit, we need the money.
Verizon. What can brown do for you?
T*Mobile. Get life out of more.
Liberty Wireless. (who?)
How do you like it?
Coverage area sucks.
No reception near phone lines, power lines, or anything else resembling a conflicting signal.
Customer service is exceptional.
It's okay. Nothing so bad I'm willing to switch, but inertia is mostly what keeps me here.
It works when I need it. That's really all I care about.
My phone has all these cool features...
Do you have wireless web or email services.
Just email (text messaging).
Just web browsing.
No. Don't need none of that fancy dancy stuff.
Yes, but you really have to watch what you're sending, or you'll get ass-raped on the overage charges.
Just email and AIM. They're great though.
Do you like your phone?
Eh. It's a phone. It has buttons. I like buttons.
No, it sucks. I need something better.
It's really well thought out for a tiny piece of machinery
What make and model is it?
Did you get the joke in the title.
Yeah, but it wasn't funny.

|12:30 pm - Here's to hoping|
Someone in here were smoking and the smell is giving me a headache.
I'm peering over Scott's shoulder while he's using his cell. His wireless service is through RCN, but they're using Sprint's data network. And he says he loves it. I know he has full inet access because I remember a previous discussion on this topic.
